Sony Bravia KDL-46HX729 LED LCD 3D HDTV Review

The Sony Bravia KDL-46HX729 is not recommended for avid 3D fans.

$899.00 at Amazon 46 in.


The KDL-46HX729 ($1709 MSRP) is a relatively high-end model in Sony's line-up. They certainly didn't skimp on the feature set: 3D display, a huge collection of streaming content, built-in WiFi, DLNA support, and a super-thin profile thanks to the LED edge-lighting. The TV held up extremely well in our tests, especially the color performance, but there were enough red flags in the 3D testing that we're not recommending this for avid 3D fans.
